    Not one person that was going to buy the fight will not do so because there’s also a card on BT Sport. Everyone watching the Warren card are people that wouldn’t have bought it whether there was a clash or not.

    Watched a PROPER evenly matched World Title Fight on Premier Sports last night Berchelt v Valdez with both fighters at the top of their sport. The £9.99 per month for US boxing, Serie A, La Liga, Dutch, Pork n Cheese and Scottish Cup football, Rugby Union, Cricket is decent value. They also gave us Crawford v Brook last month.

    Why on earth do people even think about forking out £19.99 PPV money for PED Pudding Whyte v OAP Pedvetkin for the Lineal PED Pudding Bragging Rights?

    Pudding Whyte has amassed close to £50m of PPV Loot without even fighting for a World Title - the PPV Mugths keep giving and Pudding Whyte keeps taking. Exactly the same for Pudding Chisora and other PPV Highwaymen such as Haye and Bellew over the years.

    Eh Day says buy and the PPV Mugths go into automatic mug mode - the world has gone mad.

    Not really, two British Title fights, big step ups for both Hutchinson and Essowman

    Cheeseman Metcalf and Kongo Mckinson are more evenly matched than those two fights.

    Sport has been given exception to travel from day 1. Its no different to football clubs travelling around Europe.

    So why can't Whyte get back?

    No Whyte wouldn't have been allowed back unless he self-isolated for 10 or 14 days in a Government-funded hotel. That's why Arsenal couldn't play Benfica in Portugal and vice-verca, so the games took place in alternative venues.

    Yes this is different as his been living in Portugal so the rules are different. It makes sense to move it to Gibraltar as neither him or Povetkin can isolate for so long in a hotel before this fight.
